How to hang indoor plants from a ceiling if you're allowed to drill
First, you’ll need to decide what plant and pot you would like hanging from your ceiling, and what kind of hanger you want to use. There are plenty of options in-store and online at Flower Power.
Decide where you want your plant to hang: preferably in a corner so you don’t walk into it but far enough away from the wall that it hangs freely, and somewhere it will get the right amount of light and air. If you're allowed to drill into the ceiling of your house or apartment and you're wondering how to hang plants from a ceiling, you should go to your nearest hardware store and get a swag hook. If your preferred spot has you drilling into drywall, you’ll also need a spring toggle set that clips into place when it is inserted into the drilled hole. If using a spring toggle, check how much weight it will hold and how heavy your plant is. If you're drilling into studs, you’ll want a swag hook with a screw on the end that you can screw in securely.
Most hanging baskets will have a hook already attached at the top, but you can also use extender chains to get your plant to the correct height.
How to hang plants from a ceiling if you're not allowed to drill
If you're renting or you're not allowed to drill into your ceiling for any other reason, how to hang indoor plants from a ceiling might seem impossible. Don’t give up on your hanging plant dream. There are plenty of other options for how to hang potted plants:
- Tension rods. These are good for nooks or niches, doorways narrow corridors or anywhere you can get a tension rod up. They can carry a fair amount of weight, but hang more plants with caution.
- Adhesive hooks. These easy-to-apply and easy-to-remove hooks like the 3M brand ones are the answer to how to hang plants from a ceiling if you have smaller hanging plants.
- C-clamps. If you have open doorways, arches or exposed beams you can use a C-clamp to hang plants, just make sure they are hung high enough that you don’t walk into them.
- Over door hooks. Like the ones commonly used for towels, you can get ones that extend a fair way out from the door to give the plant room to hang and use them over unused doors.
